During our two week holiday in Spain, we were fortunate to have our final meal in Malaga at Al-yamal having walked by it many times over the course of our stay. We wound up eating there based on all the glowing reviews, but even so, our meal and the atmosphere surpassed our expectations! The cous-cous was scrumptious and the peppermint... More

Easily the best food in Spain. Even my picky kids ate all the food. I'm glad we made it our choice on our last day in Malaga.

We really enjoyed sitting at this restaurant and feeling like we were in Morocco. Intimate and romantic, with lovely decoration and delicious food. Also, the traditional peppermint tea and pastas as desert were scrumptious. Highly recommended! Rosa & Denis

The food here is good with more use of chilli than is typical of Moroccan food, but fortunately we like that. However the portions are very small but the bill is high and I have dropped the score from 4 to 3 because of the poor value for money.

I keep going back to this place every time I go to Malaga. The place is kind of old and could get updated but the food is the best Moroccan I have tried (outside Morocco of course). I always order the humus, couscous and green tea with pastries.

The food is great and the staff really friendly. If you are not familiar with Moroccan dishes the owner will explain them to you. The only problem: It's a small place with few tables (most seat only two people).

Having been in malaga for 5 days now, we were bored of the standard tapas served in the majority of restaurants. Having seen this restaurant at number 20 on trip advisor i thought we should give it a try. It was a little difficult to find at first ... we also thought it was closed as the doors were shut....

We LOVED this restaurant! The waiter (maybe owner?) was very knowledgeable about the history and culture behind the food and took the time to share his recommendations. This place is definitely worth visiting, we would go back for sure!
